Sun, Sand, and Spontaneity: Our Aruba Adventure


Hello lovely readers!

You guessed it, we're back from our most recent escapade, an unforgettable trip to the Caribbean gem - Aruba. With its turquoise water, stunning white sand beaches, and enviable weather, I could not have chosen a better spot for a holiday with the hubby.

Why Aruba, you ask? Two words – “Constant sunshine.” The island is located outside the hurricane belt, which means delightful weather all year round, and that's why it earned the title "One Happy Island." After weathering long weeks of work (and countless Zoom calls), we deserved a sunny retreat.

We stayed at Playa Linda and we visited the Ritz-Carlton, offering breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea with its calming waves and magical sunsets - cue the mandatory couple silhouettes against the setting sun and we also visited the Marriott. 

Aruba charmed us with its fine blend of serene beaches and thrilling adventures – a dual spirit that resonated with our personalities as well! We discovered some hidden gems like the Arikok National Park. It was like stepping into a different world with its unique wildlife, historical caves, and a magnificent natural pool for a refreshing dip. Bathing under a cascading waterfall within this park was nothing short of a tropical paradise fantasy.

Now for the adrenaline junkies in us, the UTV off-road tour had our hearts racing. Hustling through Aruba's rugged landscapes, we bumped along rocky terrains, dirt roads, and splashed through the puddles, leaving behind clouds of dust and a trail of laughter.

Being food enthusiasts, Aruban cuisine was a gastronomic delight. From upscale restaurants to food trucks, we devoured it all. Portions of 'Keshi Yena' (stuffed cheese), fresh seafood, and 'Bolo Pretu' (a decadent black cake) became our daily temptations. There's nothing quite like feasting on exotic dishes while the soft sea breeze ruffles your hair.

We embraced the Aruba mantra - “Biba Dushi”, which means "Live Sweetly". An epic sunset sail became a surprise date planned by my darling husband. As we clinked our champagne glasses to the setting sun, feeling the love and warmth beneath the star-studded Caribbean sky, I realized moments like these were what vacations are truly about – creating sweet memories.

On one of our relaxed evenings, we strolled hand-in-hand along the pristine Eagle Beach lit by twinkling stars. We got to witness the magical hatching of baby turtles – their hurried scamper towards the vast ocean under the dedicated supervision of Turtugaruba, Aruba’s turtle conservation group. It was an enchanting display of Mother Nature at her best and a reminder of how we are merely guests on this beautiful planet.

Aruba gave us more than just a break, but a treasure trove of experiences and cherished memories. The island's warm-hearted people, their infectious smiles, rhythmic music, vibrant culture, and, most importantly, a happifying vibe has left a permanent mark in our hearts.

For those contemplating an Aruba trip, take the plunge! This tiny island promises a big, hearty welcome and an experience as unforgettable as ours!

Until next time, keep travelling, keep smiling!
